Ink pad stamp shading ~ deer antler cards.

For Technique Time at Unity, I am showing a way to obtain ink pad shading with two-tone stamping and stamp layers.  This is a no coloring option for stamping.

Warm wishes.
Sending my thanks.

Here are two cards, made similar with different sentiments.  This involves stamp layering in coordinating colors using ink pad blending.  See below for details and a video tutorial.

Here are helpful tips for creating these cards.  To begin, pre-cut and trim the deer panel and the sentiment panel.  Next, stamp the whole background layer in the lightest shade of gray.  Then, stamp the edges inward on the background in a darker gray, without covering the entire stamp.  Also, stamp the sentiment.  Now, stamp the deer antlers in the center of the background, once with light pink and then around the edges inward in a darker pink.  Finally, layer and assemble the card and embellishments to finish.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
